Weber, Lisa A.; And Others
This report presents patterns and trends in services provided to persons with developmental disabilities through the Washington State Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) and related agencies from 1989 through 1994. Following an executive summary, individual chapters provide extensive detail on: (1) the Division and this project; (2) types of services; (3) frequency of services; (4) expenditures for services; and (5) staffing for services. Major findings are reported for frequency of services, expenditures for services, and staffing for DDD residential programs. Findings include: 83 percent of persons eligible for DDD services received services other than DDD case management; community residential services and employment/day programs were the most common DDD services received; 49 percent of individuals in community residential facilities received residential services funded by other divisions; expenditures for community residential, other community services, and personal care for children more than doubled in this period; expenditures per person increased 74 percent for placement support and 43 percent for case management; most of the direct service staff worked at Residential Habilitation Centers (RHCs) and intensive tenant support programs. Appendices provide additional analysis and tables detailing data on methodology, community services by region, respite care in RHCs, expenditures by Center, and staffing by specific residential service.
